Acupuncture is an old ancient form of healing that utilizes energetic lines in the body called meridians. These meridians are believed to elicit responses in certain areas of the body to stimulate the healing process.
An initial acupuncture treatment consists of a consultation followed by a treatment. The consultation is an attempt to categorize the nature of your condition from a Chinese medical perspective. Therefore the initial consultation takes considerable longer that follow up consultations as an inquiry into the nature of the presenting condition takes more time. Subsequent visits are only 40 minutes in duration (initial consultations take an hour).
The treatment itself is a generally pleasant experience and patients usually feel relaxed with a sense of well being after the treatment. The cycle of treatment for any condition will always be established at the outset of treatment and there will be review sessions every month. Initial batches vary greatly and it really depends upon the presenting condition and the patient's general health.
The insertion of the needle is not generally painful, due to the needle's thinness. Additionally guide tubes are used to the deaden the sensation of insertion at the site. I use a mixture of Japanese and Classical Chinese needles. All needle are single use, disposable and sterile and I am registered with the local authority for a licence to practice.
